Kirchenfest Jass Tournament Rules
Entry Fee: $20.00/player; Postmarked after August 24th – $25.00. NO REFUNDS
Prizes: Prizes to be determined by the number of entries
Keep the same partner throughout the tournament
Number of games: 7
Number of deals per game: 8 (twice around the table)
Scoring: 1 point awarded to the team that scores the most points in a hand (including meld)
1 additional point awarded for holding the opponents under 42 points in a hand
EVERY HAND SHOULD BE COUNTED
Renege: If you or your partner catch your own renege, there is no penalty. If your opponents catch your renege, they receive one point for the hand, and the deal is over unless your opponents want to continue for a possible “sack” for two points.
Meld: You must declare meld before your first card hits the table in a deal, or it does not count. You must also show your meld after the trick or it does not count. Likewise for “Steck” – you must say “Steck” before the last steck card hits the table.
